Fantasy Baseball Waiver Wire Pitchers for Points Leagues for Week 14 (2024)

Taj Bradley - Fantasy Baseball Rankings, MLB Prospects, Draft Sleepers

Welcome, RotoBallers, to our Fantasy Baseball Waiver Wire Pitchers for Points Leagues for Week 14 -- June 24 through June 30. The players on this list can bolster your squad in your head-to-head ("H2H") points leagues. Each recommendation is rostered in around half of ESPN and/or Yahoo leagues.

Every week, we have a weekly points-league roundup here at RotoBaller. In this format, player values are often drastically different depending on the platform. Because of that, we highlight players who are fit to succeed regardless of the format.

Most of the pitchers on this list are expected to make two starts in Week 14. If you're looking for hitters, check out our other fantasy baseball waiver wire pickups articles. Now, let's get into this week's top options.

Be sure to check all of our fantasy baseball lineup tools and weekly lineup resources:


Fantasy Baseball Points League Waiver Wire - Best Choices

Taj Bradley, Tampa Bay Rays

Yahoo: 50%; ESPN: 18%

Besides one blow-up start against the Orioles (3 1/3 IP, 9 H, 9 ER, 3 BB, 3 K), Bradley has been exceptional this year. He didn't make his season debut until May 10 due to a pectoral injury. He's made up for lost time, posting a 4.06 ERA, 1.15 WHIP, and 53:14 K/BB ratio through his first eight outings.

Bradley is expected to make two starts at home in Week 14, and both are incredibly favorable matchups. He'll first pitch against the Mariners, who have a combined .671 OPS against right-handed pitching (tied for 24th in MLB) and a .703 OPS on the road (12th). Then, he'll face the Nationals, who have a combined .683 OPS against righties (19th) and a .671 OPS on the road (20th).

Over his last three starts, Bradley is 1-1 with a 1.50 ERA, 1.00 WHIP, and 21:5 K/BB. If he can keep it up in Week 14 (and the matchups are certainly favorable), he'll provide a ton of value.

Matt Waldron, San Diego Padres

Yahoo: 55%; ESPN: 28%

Waldron has been a pleasant surprise for the Padres, posting a 3.46 ERA, 1.16 WHIP, and 76:25 K/BB. The 27-year-old knuckleballer has been especially effective lately, only allowing five runs in his 33 1/3 innings.

Waldron also has two solid matchups on tap. Like Taj Bradley, he'll face the Nationals at home. After that, he'll take on the Red Sox at Fenway Park, whose .743 OPS against righties ranks 13th in MLB. Overall, if Waldron's hot streak continues, he's a fantastic option for Week 14.


Fantasy Baseball Points League Waiver Wire - Next Choices

James Paxton, Los Angeles Dodgers

Yahoo: 37%; ESPN: 14%

Paxton may not be the strikeout artist he once was, but he's still an effective pitcher. The 35-year-old lefty has a 3.65 ERA, 1.31 WHIP, and 43:33 K/BB. On top of that, pitching for the Dodgers has resulted in a 7-1 record thus far.

Two enticing matchups next week make Paxton especially intriguing for Week 14. Any pitcher facing the White Sox in Chicago always has the potential for a strong outing. The Sox are dead last in home OPS (.624 -- the second worst is .650) and 26th in OPS against lefties (.641).

Paxton's second start will come against the Giants in San Francisco. Their .688 OPS at home is 20th overall, but their .756 OPS against lefties is the eighth best. Overall, the benefits of facing the White Sox should substantially outweigh any concerns over facing the Giants (pun intended).

Cade Povich, Baltimore Orioles

Yahoo: 9%; ESPN: 3%

Since making his MLB debut on June 6, Povich has been relatively successful. In 16 innings, he's posted a 3.94 ERA, 1.25 WHIP, and 9:9 K/BB. Still looking to find his stride in Baltimore's rotation, he's a promising young lefty with tons of potential.

If Povich's matchups were better in Week 14, there's a chance he'd be a more desirable option. While he's set to make two starts at home, his first outing will come against the Guardians, who are 10th in MLB with a .740 OPS against lefties and ninth in road OPS (.718). He'll then square off against the defending champion Rangers, who have a .658 OPS both against lefties and on the road. Overall, Povich is a bit more risky than Paxton, but he's certainly a fun and intriguing choice. Perhaps most importantly, he's available in almost every league.

Side note: Another lefty with the same matchups as Povich is Cole Irvin. While he's struggled lately, consider him alongside Povich this week.


Fantasy Baseball Points League Waiver Wire - Deeper Choices

Griffin Canning, Los Angeles Angels

Yahoo: 9%; ESPN: 5%

Canning's season numbers may not be great (5.02 ERA, 1.38 WHIP, 54:29 K/BB), but he's got two favorable matchups at home coming up. The Athletics are in the bottom five of the league in OPS against righties (.668) and road OPS (.645). The Tigers aren't much better; they're in the bottom nine for each. On top of that, Canning has a 4.85 ERA at home, which is higher than his 5.21 ERA on the road. While he's not a flashy or fun pick, he could have a sneaky-good week.
